Smell

Does it smell of aniseed also can you remember the type of tree's nearby if any or was it in grass

Aniseed smell

I didn't want to say in case it clouded your judgement, but yes it does have a faint smell of aniseed! I'll break it up tomorrow and have a proper sniff.

Not sure about the tree but they were in grass near the base of the trunk.

Maybe

It may be Clitocybe odora if you still have the cap intact pop it on a piece of paper and cover with a small dish overnight and you will get a spore print also the smell is enhanced in a confined space

Thanks

The spore print has come out well,from the other photo's and print I would say it is Clitocybe odora as originally thought, I have never found this one yet.
